As the Director of Content and Creative, you’ll collaborate with the VP of marketing, Director of Brand and Marketing communications, Eko Experience Producers, and Creative Directors from outside agencies and production companies to guide and guard Eko's standards of excellence across every campaign.

  • Work with the VPs of Marketing and Distribution to create successful marketing campaigns and content strategies for the original series. 
  • Align with Eko original series creators throughout production to ensure their creative DNA is part of the marketing material being produced.
  • Review potential external partners and advise on the best fit for each campaign.
  • Review agency work for creative strength and confirm it meets established KPIs.
  • Supervise the creative process: Provide notes and approve concepts, scripts, design, pre-production assets, edits, and interactive elements for all marketing projects.
  • Oversee development for industry award submissions, sizzle reels, ad hoc marketing, and event asset needs.

  • You have experience in a Creative Director role at an advertising agency or in-house entertainment network.
  • You get hands-on in producing all kinds of assets, from our O&O channels to emails, decks, and more.
  • You can effectively develop and present ideas on strategy and creative execution both internally and to brand and agency partners.
